In the process of building and using models to comprehend the dynamics of the atmosphere, ocean and climate, the reader will learn how the different components of climate systems function, interact with each other, and vary over time. Topics include the stability of climate, Earths energy balance, parcel dynamics in the atmosphere, the mechanisms of heat transport in the climate system, and mechanisms of climate variability. Special attention is given to the effects of climate change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This is a useful textbook on numerical simulation of fluid motions in a context of their application in various aspects of atmospheric dynamics relevant to global climate models. The author's aim is not to focus on numerical techniques and mathematical details, instead the reader is approached by clear and readable descriptions of physical processes involved in a particular atmospheric phenomenon." (Vladimir Cadez, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 995 (20), 2002)

"This book is the seventh volume in the series `Modeling Dynamic Systems'. ... If you are serious with climate modeling, you will love this book. In my view, it marks a real progress as compared to other recent textbooks on much the same topic ... . The best aspect of the book is ... the beautifully balanced view of the global climate. So, a fine slim book, well embedded into other system modeling treatments, and worth its price." (Michael Hantel, Metereologische Zeitschrift, Vol. 11 (1), 2002)

"Modelling Dynamic Climate Systems attempts to guide the reader into an appreciation of ... complex feedback couplings by considering a spectrum of simple models of climate and climate processes. ... Modelling Dynamic Climate Systems is an appropriate laboratory companion to a more formal treatment of climate dynamics. Robinson's contribution to the series Modeling Dynamic Systems provides a basis for developing, through experimentation, a sound conceptual intuition of the (at times) intricate balance between multiple physical processes operating within the climate system." (David Noone, Australian Meteorological Magazine, Vol. 51 (1), 2002)
